Yes it's true...we actually sold our house in this god-awful market! The phone call from our agent about the offer came in as we were driving the 5 hours up to my parents lake house. We couldn't believe all of this was happening and we were going to be somewhere with little internet access and absolutely no cell phone service, let alone a fax machine. Yikes. Luckily...we got the dealings done (after a few back and forth negotiations) before we arrived in Sister Lakes and lost our cell service. Unfortunately...the offer asked that we be out by JULY 30TH...so we have a lot of time to find our own little dream house (note sarcasm here)...not to mention that we were 5 hours away and it was a holiday weekend. Luckily, Mike took the day off today so we could house-hunt in a hurry and we narrowed it down to 3 fabulous homes that are all so wonderful (by our standards at least) that we can't seem to pick one! However...given that it's already July 7th...we need to decide in the next 24 hours. We are going back to the three contenders tomorrow then an offer will go in and hopefully we'll be able to close and get into a house before we are essentially homeless. Phew! We'll keep you all posted!
